In the Old Testament, the enemy came in and stole the gold out of the temple of the Lord. Then King Rehoboam came along and substituted brass for gold. Christians have done the same thing today. They have substituted the gold of the temple---God's plans, purposes, and pursuits for His New Testament Church---for the brass of the world. They have brought into the church worldly and fleshly demonstrations and substituted that for the real moving of God's Spirit.
The next great spiritual outpouring that God wants to bring upon the earth will require that man lay aside his own plans, purposes, and pursuits and pursue the true worship of God. The Body of Christ is in the shallow waters of a new beginning of God's glory manifested in the earth, but that new wave of God's blessing can only occur as the Body of Christ gets the brass out of the temple.
